People enter the church in Woods Harbour before Steven Cole Nickerson's memorial service last week.
Two weeks of memorial services for the five fishermen lost on the Miss Ally will end with a final service, one for Katlin Nickerson on Saturday, March 16 at the Calvary Baptist Church in Woods Harbour.
Pastor Phil Williams says it has been a difficult week for the community.
“There has been great sorrow and sadness,” he said.
Last week, services were held for Joel Hopkins and Steven Cole Nickerson. A service was also held on Sunday at the Barrington Arena for Tyson Townsend.
The memorial service for Billy Jack Hatfield will be held Thursday, March 14 at 2 p.m. at Huskilson's Funeral Home Barrington.
Nickerson’s service will start at 2 p.m. on Saturday in Woods Harbour at the Calvary Baptist Church, with overflow seating at the nearby Wesleyan Church. The service will also be streamed live on the Internet.
The memorial services held in recent days for the lost fishermen have seen hundreds of people attend.
Pastor Williams says expressions of sympathy have come from across the country, with letters still arriving daily.
Flags at Province House and all provincial buildings in Shelburne County have been placed at half mast in honour of the fishermen.
Pastor Williams has said that while people are going back to work and that life is continuing, that it is a “new normal” for a community that may never be the same in the wake of the tragedy.
